American Future Fuel Applauds Historic Partnership Between Romania and the United States: Establishing the European Nation as the First to Embrace Small Modular Reactor Technology

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – September 14, 2023 – American Future Fuel Corporation (CSE: AMPS; OTCQB: AFFCF; FWB: K14, WKN: A3DQFB) (the “Company” or “American Future Fuel”), a junior uranium exploration company, applauds the September 11, 2023 announcement, as reported in EuroNews[1], that Romania has become the first European nation to embrace Small Modular Reactor (SMR) Technology through an unprecedented collaboration with the United States under its ‘Project Phoenix’.

 

The Project Phoenix, a visionary initiative first unveiled by U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry during the UN Climate Change Conference in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt (COP27), in November 2022 represents a monumental stride towards expediting the global transition to a clean energy future. The project’s core mission is to facilitate the conversion of coal-fired power plants into cutting-edge small modular reactor (SMR) nuclear energy generation facilities. These state-of-the-art SMRs, designed with advanced safety, security, and non-proliferation features, offer numerous benefits, including flexibility in land use, reduced capital investment, and the capacity to address diverse energy needs.

 

Romania’s pivotal role as the first country outside the United States to embrace SMR technology is commendable. This groundbreaking initiative will seek to replace outdated coal-fired power stations with advanced, environmentally friendly nuclear reactors. The project in Doicești, located just north of Bucharest, is set to create over 2,000 jobs and mitigate the production of a staggering 4 million tonnes of carbon dioxide annually. Romania’s commitment to clean energy sets a remarkable example for the world.

 

Furthermore, American Future Fuel Corporation acknowledges the concurrent and integral role to be played by the Polytechnic University of Bucharest in the groundbreaking step towards a greener future, as the University will become the European ‘hub’ for training future nuclear energy specialists from all over Europe.

 

American Future Fuel Corporation applauds all stakeholders involved in Project Phoenix for their dedication to advancing clean energy solutions and creating a brighter, more sustainable world for generations to come. We remain steadfast in our support of these efforts and look forward to witnessing the positive impact of these groundbreaking initiatives.

 

This groundbreaking partnership ushers in a new era of sustainable energy and solidifies Romania’s commitment to a greener future.

 

Romania’s forward-looking vision and dedication to energy innovation have led to the monumental achievement of securing SMR Technology, positioning the nation at the forefront of clean energy advancements in Europe. The collaborative effort between Romania and the United States marks a historic milestone that promises to revolutionize the energy landscape across the continent.
